David Goldstein ‘13 also picked up eight ground balls and Jared Palmer ‘13 recorded seven ground balls. Henry Burchenal ‘12 and John Ogden ‘13 each scored one goal and earned one assist. Landrey Mack ‘11 won 9 of 11 faceoffs.

Armideo started the scoring just seven seconds into the game, and added another at the 13:10 mark. Luke Sadoff ‘12 scored his ninth goal of the season and Franke Holiber ‘10 tallied his 11th goal during the run. Wells (2-11) scored its first goal with 26 seconds remaining in the first quarter.

James Forrey ‘13 scored his second goal of the season, and Lai found the back of the net twice during the run.
Wells opened the fourth quarter with a man-up goal 1:14 in to make it 16-2. Hamilton closed out the quarter with five more goals for the final margin. Lai scored his third goal with 4:59 remaining off an assist from Alex Thompson ’13.
